Two asian teenagers – one 15 and the other 16 years old – were killed this weekend near Paris when they rode their stolen mini-moto into a police car on a routine patrol. They weren’t being chased and they weren’t wearing helmets. The response by their peers?
- Villiers-le-Bel police station has been set on fire
- Arnouville police station has been pillaged
- Two petrol stations have been torched
- Arnouville-Villier-le-Bel railway station has been damaged
- Shops have been damaged
- Cars have been torched
- Burning car roadblocks have been set up
This is what happens when two idiot teenagers kill themselves, can you imagine what would happen if they had to endure the various injustices and institutional discrimination that the English do at the hands of the British establishment? The country would be razed to the ground!
Omar Sehhouli, the brother of one of the dead teenagers said it “was not violence but an expression of rage”. Brilliant. Next time No Mandate Brown sends me into a rage I’ll get myself down to the train station with a can of petrol and a box of matches. In fact, I’ve just seen his face on the BBC website … vive la revolution!
Perhaps we have something to learn from the continental approach to democracy after all …
